When Susan and I were in Paris earlier this year, we seemed to eat pizza a lot. Part of the reason was that there was a wonderful little pizza restaurant right across the street from our hotel.
One of the things that I tend to do in the morning is look at the daily recipes on the Allrecipes site. This morning, there was a recipe for Real NY Jewish Rye Bread. It looked like an interesting recipe, especially since it called for pickle juice and dry potato flakes.
When I was a kid, my very favorite soup was split pea soup. My mom would make it using the ham bone from Christmas dinner. Through the years, I’ve made my own split pea soup, sometimes with the Christmas ham bone for flavoring, and other times with smoked sausage.

Every now and then, Susan and I make a King Cake for Mardi Gras. This year, Susan suggested that we make a Christmas King Cake, decorated in red and green. I thought – what a good idea, especially since we’re breaking with tradition this year and having a New Orleans themed Christmas dinner!
If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, you’ll love these peanut butter balls! They have only 4 ingredients, and are super easy to make, albeit a bit time-consuming. They are the ultimate peanut butter and chocolate treat, and a perfect candy to make for the holidays!

Yesterday, I made the master taste-tester Crème Caramel, his favorite dessert. My recipe uses two whole eggs, and four egg yolks. Generally, I make meringues with the unused egg whites. This time, however, I thought I would try the Sugar Coated Pecans recipe from the Allrecipes site.
